Smugmug and Sedona

Today is brought to you by the letter ‘S’.  Recovering from a wonderful week in Sedona, and using Smugmug to handle the photos going forward (for now).  It actually does give me everything I want, and then some, but I’m not entirely happy with the cost.  Am I finally to the point where hosting/coding is too much work that I’ll pay others to do it for me?

Photos from the trip are here, and for the first time in forever I didn’t have to reduce the pictures’sizes to protect the server: https://howlingpoint.smugmug.com/Sedona-Roadtrip-June-2018/

While waiting for our outstanding Hummer tour of Sedona to start, Randy and I sat on a bench at the strip mall to enjoy a bit of shade.  As Randy posted on the Facebook:

So this just happened…
Charles Hartley and I sitting together on a bench in the shade>

Dude: “You guys got it right! Let your wives shop while you guys sit and relax!”

Us: ……<stunned silence>

I was this close to saying something.

A few minutes later, we walked over to our waiting Hummer.  It turns out we were the only two passengers on this evening’s tour.  I introduced us to the tour guide using the super secret codewords from the Gay Agenda, 2008 edition: “This is my husband, Randy.”  Doug (tour guide extraordinaire) responded, admittedly unexpectedly, by asking how long we’d been together, then offering that he’d been with his own partner for over thirty years but just gotten legally married a year ago.

Arizona tried to live down to my stereotypes, but then in a quick flash proved me completely wrong and just as guilty of bad assumptions as the redneck who doesn’t like shopping with his wife.  Loving Sedona.
